benghazi relate fair and open hearing. >> the unfair attacks on the ambassador susan rice are simply wrong. she had to rely on intelligence provided. i sat here while colin powell provided the intelligence he had regarding weapons of mass destruction in iraq. >> reporter: fox news was told behind closed doors there were heated exchanges in the classified session over the so-called benghazi talking points used by the administration and ambassador susan rice for the sunday talk show september 16. fox news told neither the director of international intelligence nor the acting director of the c.i.a. knew who finalized the talking points and they could not explain why it minimized the role of al-qaeda when there is evidence of the terrorist group's involvement. morrell was pushed to explain why petraeus told lawmakers it was a flash mob prompted by the anti-islam video. morrell said he wasn't at petraeus' briefing and had nothing further to add. republicans questions drove the state department to deny request for security after ambassador chrissteins and his team or consulate could not defend a
parts of the community? >> but does this, would this give-- what does it mean for, say, susan rice and the administration then? is this, does this help them politically by shielding them or does petraeus here saying i thought it was a terrorist attack, does that mean this puts, for example, susan rice's statements more up to scrutiny? >> well, i think answers the fundamental question, did they deliberately mislead on this case for political reasons because they were driving the narrative that al-qaeda had been decimated and the war, war was receding or a question of incompetence. neither of those two things is good for the administration although it's after the election, so, they can get the consequences. >> let's take a look at the president talking about susan rice, the u.n. ambassador who many think he will nominate to succeed hillary clinton as secretary of state. >> for them to go after the u.n. ambassador, who had nothing to do with benghazi, and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> paul:
with what we've been told the cia had been telling susan rice? >> i think the real problem for general petraeus in this story is that it not only does not mesh with what the white house was saying, it doesn't mesh with what we're told general petraeus said in the immediate aftermath, where he is said to have talked about a spontaneous flash mob. >> to members of congress. >> to members of congress behind closed doors as well and this is the problem. it's not only that we know that that's not true now, it's that at the time there were a lot of other indications that indicate that was not true, denied by the libyan prime minister, the cia station chief called it an act of terror. we had the fbi and i believe the national center for counterterrorism also giving briefings. >> paul: that's right. >> saying this. why was general petraeus's testimony then so at odds with other parts of the community? >> but does this, would this give-- what does it mean for, say, susan rice and the administration then? is this, does this help them politically by shielding them or does petraeus here saying i t
is outrageous. >> that began with south carolina senator lindsey graham giving his view of ambassador susan rice and her role in the administration spin on the benghazi terror attacks and the president's reactions to those statements at his first news conference since being reelected. mr. obama, defending ms. rice, but his defense has actually added more to the controversy. senator graham reacted to the president by saying, mr. president, don't think for one minute i don't hold you responsible for benghazi, i think you failed as commander-in-chief before, during and after the attack. so much to get to first on this, jim, the showdown between the two senators, graham and mccain and the president. abc's terry moran called it an obama smackdown. "the washington post" john mccain's benghazi, and some say it's about mccain being bitter about losing to obama four years ago. >> i think five names and a conflagration, and number one petraeus and broadwell and number two, benghazi, benghazi, petraeus, broadwell, military ethics, mccain obama reduction, and fifth, the susan rice story, which life imitates
, wouldn't tell anyone who instructed susan rice to go with the video story. the way it went down, she was told to go out there to talk to five talk shows and there were talking points. who prepared the talking points and told them to go with the talking point? neither one of them would come clean on. >> dana: they have plausible deniability. they said we don't know who did it. that feels convenient. >> bob: president said the white house asked her to do it. >> dana: who prepared the information, that is the question. >> bob: the question is who gave her the talking points? and we know talking points she was given to her mind, given the same intelligence committees of the hill, >> dana: they could not talk about the role of ansar al-sharia when there is strong evidence of the involvement. if the chairwoman was getting advice about the question to ask, the question you have been asking since september 11. >> greg: incredible. do you think hillary got herself far enough away from this thing? she is in australia. feed her wine and we might get more facts from her slightly tipsy than anybo
. so when the president says that susan rice was giving out -- talking about the most updated and the fully documented intelligence that the intelligence community had, that's not true because there were a number of analysis that had been done in the three days leading up to the talking points, which clearly showed by the intelligence community's own analysis that al qaeda-affiliated groups were directly involved. this is a total -- sham. >> sean: we need to findoud who took them out. i mean -- >> here we have the leaders in the american intelligence community saying khalid al-sayah they don't know who altered their talking points. if we can't find out who in the administration altered the talking points, how are we going to find out what the enemy's doing. >> sean: congressman heck, the realtime video. from what i understand, there were two sets of video, one from the drone above, which got there 15 minutes after it started or thereabouts. and video from the compound itself. can you describe what was on the video, sir? >> well, the video that was obtained from the unmanned ae
. >> there are legitimate questions to ask about susan rice and the timeline, the talking points but nobody died because of that. if it was a coverup it was unsuccessful because it broke down two days later. thisthis is the key question. because there had been dozens of warnings, two attacks including an ied which exploded outside the consulate. the red cross pulled out of benghazi, the british embassador pulled out of benghazi, and that is a question -- we also know in august, a month before the attack, that embassador stevens and a lot of top diplomatic security sent messages saying there are extremist groups and we don't have enough security. that's the question. that's what could have saved lives. why was the decision not made to beef up security or simply say to the embassador, like other countries, let's pull out because it's too dangerous. >> speaking of susan rice and general petraeus and his testimony saying someone took out the references to al-qaeda and called those attackers extremist? it seems the president could be backing susan rice for secretary of state. "washington post," a strong edit

of the final version that we believe was ultimately given to the u.n. ambassador, susan rice. why was that done? who did this? catherine herridge is live on capitol hill. reporter: that's right. congressional horses tell fox news that there were changes to the cia talking points and that language of al qaeda affiliated individuals was replace -- replaced, which have the impact of minimizing or downplaying the role of al qaeda and another group, al sharia come on the consulate on 9/11. there was also testimony this week that the intelligence community to those talking points and went to an interagency process. so that other elements of the intelligence community as well as input and review by the state department, as well as the department of justice, that eventually made its way to ambassador susan rice. no one commissioner who was the final author of this talking point given to ambassador susan rice, who is on the sunday talk show on september 16 and repeated on multiple occasions that meant david was in response to the anti-islam video and that was a demonstration that had spun out of control
, the talking points of susan rice saw in the next 48 hours before she appeared on the sunday talk shows said it was mob violence and video. what do you make of that, tucker? >> this was the big revelation of the day as far as i can tell. it's not clear that susan rice didn't see the original talking points, but the administration conceded today all, but conceded, said, flat-out, we know that al-qaeda was involved, and the term al-qaeda was listed in the origin tell againintelligen and taken out. and the administration says al-qaeda or affiliates classified information, so they had to be scrubbed from what was given to congress. and even if you accept that's a legitimate operating procedure, you have to acknowledge that they've intentionally misled, susan rice-- >> who is they? >> susan rice, but clearly the cia knew this. it's inconceivable that the american ambassador to the united nations was sent out on television with totally incomplete information, with talking points that had been basically scrubbed and having no knowledge of what was originally in them. >> is it clear that susan rice
has a message for people going after ambassador susan rice for her five-time benghazi flop. >> if senator graham and mccain and others want to go after somebody they should go after me. >> steve: that's fine with the senators. >> brian: the energy drink you are about to jug could kill you. why they give me this read. deadly pick me ups. i am on hour one. keep your fingers crossed.

, spontaneous mob violence. susan rice who on the sunday talk shows misled the public by blaming, quote, on the anti-muslim video so the talking points came from the intelligence agency. that is true? is if so, why did it happen. also we're told that broadwell had access to classified information on her computer. and we know general petraeus traveled to libya to conduct his own review of the benghazi attack, while in tripoli he personally questioned the station chief and other c.i.a. personnel who were in benghazi on september 11th when this attack occurred. now, they all knew this was terror attack and so did our state department. david petraeus is not the only key actor in all of this. we have hillary clinton, eric holder and we have president obama. what did they know? when did they know it? injecting me now jay from law and justice and former c.i.a. covert operations officer and president of diligence llc, mike baker. welcome to hannity. what do you think. >> i think the first thing we had an october surprise in the election but we didn't find out about it until november. the situat
that terrorists were behind the attack, that the administration watered down the talking points, that susan rice ended up using because they didn't want to tip off the terrorist they were on to them. let me start first with you, senator chambliss, because you were in a closed door hearing with petraeus. one, did he say it? if so, do you believe it? >> petraeus did not say that in those words, chris. i did not interpret anything he said to be that. general petraeus number one is obviously a great man and a great leader. both from the military standpoint and with role at the c.i.a. what he did say is that day one, we knew it was a terrorist attack. there was no question about it. you don't bring automatic weapons and rpgs and mortars to so-called demonstration. still are some questions that are yet to be answered about the planning of this. whether it was done over a period of time or whether it was truly a spontaneous reaction. there is no indication now that it was anything other than a planned attack. >> chris: do you have an understanding why the talking points changed over the course of the f
.i.a. that it was clear there were pirates involved. susan rice said a spontaneous protest over an anti-islam video sparked the attack but democratic lawmakers say that can be explained. >> what is very clear is that ambassador rice used the talking points the intelligence committee had all signed off on. >>trace: they added that the c.i.a. approved the talking points and it is unclear who changed them before ambassador rice made them public. catherine has the news from capitol hill. what do we know about the changing language in the talking points? >>reporter: thank you, trace. a short time ago the former c.i.a. director, david petraeus, left capitol hill after about five hours of testimony, closed classifyied testimony before the house and senate intelligence committee and a take away was the unclassified talking points put together by the c.i.a. a congressional source told fox the language was changed from the original draft which included the language "al qaeda affiliated" with a later version saying "extremist organizations." they believed this was an effort to down play the terrorism angle in
prepared by the cia and what was ultimately embraced to am bass sore susan rice. what we mean here is there was a review process and an editing process in which the emphasis on extremist groups, al-qaida, an sar al says sharia was deemphasized in the second version used by ambassador rice. at what point did the former cia director believe that this was an act of terrorism or an act of extremists? a s*r member of the committee told fox a sort time ago was what the director laid off was an evolving picture on intel kwrepbs. >> he reinforced the facts -- in the first 24 hours he felt at that point, or the cia felt at that point that this was a protest as a result of what happened with the film. he clarified that after -- after more information came in there was not a protest. >> reporter: one lawmaker telling fox after the hearing that he did feel that there were discrepancies between the former cia director's statements today about what he said on september 14th, and the recollection of that lawmaker. let's listen. >> his testimony today was that from the start he had told us that th

. what was clear was the president's comments on ambassador susan rice is really getting some traction. one republican alleging that, quote, the president misinformed and lied to the american people over the benghazi affair. what was also clear is that the president wants to promote ambassador susan rice. even though she said benghazi was a spontaneous attack when it seemed clear it was terrorism. >> president obama has the gal to float the name of secretary of state, the name of the person who is the actual vehicle used to misinform the person disash dasht american people during this crisis. >> that's a reference to ambassador rice's appearance less than a week after the benghazi attack. the republicans charge that the story was not that strays forward and rice got her information from the cia and other agencies. >> these unfair attacks on ambassador susan rice are simply wrong. she had to rely on the intelligence that was provided. i sat here while colin powell provided the intelligence that he had regarding weapons of mass destruction in iraq. >> the other two key pieces fell into p

nominee. >> these unfair attacks on ambassador susan rice are simply wrong. she had to rely on the intelligence that was provided. i sat here while colin powell provide the the intelligence that he had regarding weapons of mass destruction in iraq. >> then you have the audacity to come here and say why wasn't the protection of these people provided for? and the answer is because you dam didn't provide it. >> the sun doesn't come up until 6:52. the 7:30 a.m. start time for the petraeus hearing on the house side is the earliest hearing. high profile or otherwise that he has ever seen. back to you in new york. >>> peter doocy, thanks. 7:30 they think that it early. come on guys. let's get started. >>> staying with the very serious topic of the benghazi hearings we are going to take a look at who is talking. the video was captured drone surveillance. what it means and the investigation into the attack that killed four americans. >> what it did was confirm the fact that there was a bunch of bad guys who stormed this consulate in benghazi some ca y carrying automatic weapons othe
. that doesn't gel too well together. >> two things came out. susan rice was given talking points and this is what we know and they sent her out on the five talk show. the question remains and james clapper yesterday couldn't answer it and acting cia director morell couldn't tell. who put those talking points and time line who said it is a video. is it state department or intele, or the white house? one of them has to come on. >> gretchen: maybe it was a fog of politics? >> you are putting the cia deputy in the political world. she got a unclassified briefing. why would the cia give the un ambassador who is representing the white house an unclassified briefing. >> gretchen: she is a spokes person for the united states of america and she has an unclassified briefing? i guess you could argue in the slimmest of margins that you wouldn't want to scare the american people and hide what was really going on and say it was another terrorist attack. >> there is one problem with the whole debate. the day before susan rice went on the talk shows, on the 14th. leon paneta secretary of defense
yesterday defending u.n. ambassador susan rice for her response in the days following the terrorist attack in benghazi in what has now become one of the largest conflicts for his administration, at least on the terrorism front. the president's remarks yesterday raise new questions over the conflicting accounts from the white house about the deadly attack. here's why. on september 11th, four americans were killed -- you know that now -- in our consulate in benghazi, including our ambassador. it was a terrorist attack. on the 16th of september, five days later, ambassador rice went on five sunday shows, including fox news sunday, and suggested that the attack was linked to an internet video. >> best assessment we have today is that, in fact, this was not a preplanned, premeditated attack, that what happened initially was it was a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired in cairo as a consequence of the video. megyn: when challenged yesterday on the story that ms. rice told several networks, the president said he, the white house, sent her out there with that explanation. >> as i've s
there would be an organized evident bay number of senators to make sure that susan rice is not confirm as secretary of state. should the president choose to nominate her. you need somebody who has sound judgment, able to ask tough questions at the time of a crisis. to me, susan rice failed that test. >> veteran foreign policy with interest in genocide and development, she faced scrutiny from september 15 when she appeared on five sunday shows pressing narrative of the benghazi attacks since discounted as false. >> does the president have confidence of ambassador susan rice that she can pass confirmation for any post in future cabinet? >> i will not engage in speculation about the personnel matters. the president believes ambassador rice has done an excellent job. and is grateful for her service. ♪ >> reporter: the white house also floated the idea of senator john kerry, the 2004 democratic presidential nominee and current chairman of the foreign relations committee serving as defense secretary. vietnam veteran who turned against the war he famously threw away medals he was awarded an
susan rice and he basically was really offended that anybody would criticize susan rice for her statements that she made on the sunday shows and he said, you know, why is she being cite sized she went on these shows she knew nothing about benghazi. >> bill: why did she go on the shows then. >> right. exactly which raises the question. >> bill: let me set it up in case people didn't see it okay. >> bill: senator mccain and lindsey graham of south carolina are threatening to block the nomination of susan rice if the president wants her to be secretary of state which i don't think is going to harassment i don't know why he wants that. >> right. >> bill: the president got mad and said ambassador rice is a great american and if you are going to blame anyone blame me but you can't blame me because it's all under investigation and the investigation clear me when we get around to telling you about it which will probably be in 13 years. >> he did kind of the same thing in that republic presidential debate. instead of susan rice it was hillary clinton. the week leading up to that there ha
it takings to step the promotion of susan rice as secretary of state after she went on the five sunday talk shows and repeated based on the best intelligence it was a demonstration that spun out-of-control and the president said to republicans today, bring it on. >> she has done exemplary work. she has represented the united states and our interests in the united nations with skill and professionalism and toughness and grace. as i have said before, she made an appearance at the request of the white house in which she gave her best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to her. if senator john mccain and senator graham and others want to go after someone, they should go after me. >> two key points here, that was from the president on why susan rice was the one chosen for the sunday talk shows because a lingering question we put to the white house is why they didn't choose someone lick the c.i.a. director, the director of national intelligence, the national security advisor, or the white house counterterrorism advisor because it seemed like calling in ambassador right was li
. lawmakers claim the ambassador to the united nations, susan rice, misled the public when she told sunday shows the deadly attack in benghazi was response to an antimuslim video. new there is word he is line for a major promotion. that is all ahead unless breaking news changes everything. this is "studio b." first from fox at 3:00, the cast of characters in the scandal that brought down the c.i.a. director general petraeus is growing. it now involves the commander of u.s. forces in afghanistan, the general john allen who took over the job when general petraeus left it to run the c.i.a. now officials say general allen's nomination to become the supreme allied commander in europe is on "hold" while potentially inappropriate e-mails are being checked out, and her name is jill kelley, a friend of the petraeus family and triggered the original f.b.i. investigation that revealed the director was cheating on his wife. she contacted an at she knew, shirtless agent, claiming to have received anonymous threatening e-mails tells her to stay away from general petraeus. it is unclear but the f.b.i. fo
to sppd to the rumor that ambassador susan rice is being considered to replace hillary clinton as secretary of state. needless to say, he wasn't too fond of that suggestion, considering rice is the one who appeared on five sunday shows, blaming the benghazi attack on a youtube video. >> this is about the role she played around four dead americans when it seems to be that the story coming out of the administration and she is point person, is so disconnected to reality, i don't trust her. the reason i don't trust her is because i think she knew better. and if she didn't know better, she shouldn't be the voice of america. somebody has to start paying a price around this place. but i am dead set on making sure we don't promote anybody who was an essential player in the benghazi debacle. >> sean: it appears our president, mr. sensitive, took great offense to the critique. take a look at the very angry response. >> she made an appearance at the request of the white house, in which she gave her best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to her. if senator mccain and
meant for the susan rice appearance recentlyally contain the information that there was evidence of al qaeda's elements involved in this attack. but it appears as if those talking points were altered by the white house or somebody close to the white house to remove any reference to al qaeda's involvement in the attacks. we have yet to discover who has changed the talking points to make the president look for favorable and mislead you, by falsely labeling the 9/11 attacks over spontaneous mob over the video. petraeus has no idea what was provided to rice or who was the author of the talking points that she used that, he had no idea she was going on the talk shows until the white house announced it one or two days before. now, the looming question is, in this coverup, who did it? now, earlier, fox's own katherineererridge explained where the talking points went once they left the cia. >> what we are told about the talking points is that it went through an inter-agency review, including the department of justice, the state department, other intelligence agencies and that at the end of the
